Everything Mini

Designtop20050111

Apple also released the first update to the Mac Mini. The computer itself is everything i was hoping for. Small Tiny, headless, silent, square, no keyboard or mouse, burns CDs, looks good, runs on Mac Tiger! now for the new iteration, i was hoping for DVD burning, HUGE hard drive, updated video card and at least a faster chip. BUT, Apple decided to keep everything the same and no speed bump. All they changed was the RAM, from 256 to 512MB... sigh, what are you DOING Apple? from a pretty cool idea to a piece of junk. if all you do is surf the web, then you'll be fine with it, but now that Tiger and iLife 05 is included, the Mini is just too weak. the video card is on the OLD ibooks from last year, the CPU is G4 1.25Ghz (on the powerbook 2 years ago), 40GB of HD (iPod has 60GB), and the Wifi & Bluetooth is STILL optional (which makes sense to keep prices down). So what can i do? probably won't be buying one anytime soon but i'm a suck for these things. we'll have to see. it still looks good and it can handle all the "everyday" tasks i throw at it. so still at 499 USD, or 699 USD for the super drive 1.42Ghz version. let's see what they can do with sales.
